MRI post prominent ringing in head detected few puntates in hyerperintense white matter, microvascular ischemic changes. Danger sign?

Recently I had a head MRI , and the results showed a few tiny punctate s T2 hyerperintense white matter , and microvascular ischemic changes. I had ther MRI due to a buzzing/ringing in my head, more prominant on the left side. The doctor said it was small strokes, and the buzzing/ringing in my head is damage done by the small strokes, and it is not fixable. Should this be a big red flag for me, or do I just live with it and carry on as usual? Gail A.

Yes your neurologist is saying the right thing , that tinnitus in your ear could be due to the small infarcts that are more common in diabetics , hypertensive patients and age related vascular damage.

The buzzing can continue for some time , but eventualy it goes away spontaneously and an ent SPECIALIST REVIEW WILL AALSO HELP TO CHECK YOUR EARS CAPABILITIES OR ANY SOURCE OF BUZZING.

Donot worry , i know iits disturbing , but with time you will become tolerant to it or yyou can start SSRi and strict blood pressure and sugar control if any ?

Hope this helps
